New LWVWA Affinity Group on Proportional Representation

LWVBWC members Cindy Madigan and Kit Muehlman, along with League members from Snohomish and King Counties, are starting a statewide monthly affinity group to discuss Proportional Representation & Multi-Member Districts Using Ranked Choice Voting (pRCV).

We are inviting League members, advocates, and election administrators from across the country to share their experiences with achieving proportional representation using RCV. We will hear from guest speakers and discuss in this informal affinity group the definition and reasons for proportional representation and next steps for Washington.

For background info, you may watch this video from the Democracy Lobby Week program: Using Proportional Ranked Choice Voting for Better Representation, with special guest Dr. Melanie Billings-Yun, past co-chair of the Portland Charter Review Commission.  Kit will share her presentation from this video with plenty of time for Q&A. Our guest speaker for this first meeting is Diane Silver, Better Ballot North Carolina.
